Clemson football commit Amari Rodgers eyeing visit to Southern Cal?

Clemson just lost a commitment from running back Cordarrian Richardson this weekend and now long time commit Amari Rodgers may take an official visit to another school. 

Rodgers is currently practicing in Orlando, FL at the Under Armour All-American game. Here is what ESPN’s Erik McKinney had to say about Rodgers and a possible visit to USC:

Amari Rodgers spent six months last year committed to USC before recommitting and eventually pledging to Clemson. Rodgers, the nation’s No. 71 prospect, is one of the Tigers’ most vocal recruiters, but USC is hoping to get one last crack at flipping him back to Troy. Rodgers will take his official visit to Clemson on Jan. 13, but said he could take another one. “I may go to Southern Cal after that, but I have to talk with my family and talk with my dad,” Rodgers said. Rodgers’ dad is USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin. “He wants me to come out there one more time on an official visit,” Rodgers said. “I might do that just to see what’s up out there.”

Like McKinney said, Rodgers has been a vocal recruiter for Clemson, and he was probably influential in getting fellow offensive recruits Tee Higgins and Hunter Johnson to commit to the Tigers.

Presently, Rodgers hasn’t officially announced any plans to visit USC, but with a recent de-commitment almost fresh off the news wire. You can expect Clemson fans to become a little worried about any rumblings about the other 2017 commits.

But with a recent tweet like this from Rodgers, should Tiger fans be worried?

A visit to his dad’s school could be imminent, but could it change the mind of a kid who obviously loves Clemson. Stay tuned.
